This wasn't Grignon's typical route to work. He was a senior engineer at Apple in Cupertino, the town just west of Campbell. His morning drive typically covered seven miles and took exactly 15 minutes. But today was different. He was going to watch his boss, Steve Jobs, make history at the Macworld trade show in San Francisco. Apple fans had for years begged Jobs to put a cellphone inside their iPods so they could stop carrying two devices in their pockets. Jobs was about to fulfill that wish. Grignon and some colleagues would spend the night at a nearby hotel, and around 10 a.m. the following day they - along with the rest of the world - would watch Jobs unveil the first iPhone.

I am not all against Apple, just that what the company is today.

Actually I prefer the design of vintage Apple gear lot more than this current boring design that has no edge or soul. Same thing is happening with cars as most look like they have been rolled out from the same production line with different badge put on front.

In my opinion Apple IIGS is the pinnacle of Apple design with looks that are instantly recognised as Apple product. Later Ive producs do not have that classic look anymore and the current design is not even original as there have been similarly styled products before.
